Nearly a year ago, United States tennis star Jessica Pegula put herself on the worldwide map with an impressive upset in in the Australian Open.
The then-No. 61-ranked player advanced to the quarterfinals with an upset win over then-No. 5 Elina Svitolina of Ukraine. Fast-forward one year later and she’s on another solid run in the tournament.
Pegula advanced to the fourth round of the Australian Open for the second consecutive year with a 7-6 (3), 6-2 victory over Nuria Parrizas Diaz on Thursday. Following the win, she had a message for the Buffalo Bills.
Buffalo is gearing up to face off against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium this weekend. With that playoff matchup looming, Jessica had a three-word message for her team.
“Bills, you’re next,” she wrote on a camera following her win.

Pegula is the daughter of the Buffalo Bills owners – and was even decked out in Bills colors earlier this week.
